    Do you like your significant others parents? Dislike? Cant Stand em?

    I don't particularly care for my girlfriends parents and i certainly dont respect them because of how they treat her. I know it must be worse when I am not around but I wouldnt put up with the stuff they say to her. For the most part I just keep my mouth shut though because it is easier.

    Better off keeping your mouth shut. It's a no win situation.

    For me it's actually the other way around. I love my wife's parents. They do so much for us and are all around great people. Now my mom on the other hand won't even talk to me or her grandchild becuase she doesn't like my wife, but my dad is awesome.

    Can't stand my wife's mom. I think it is a rule of nature, very seldomly is there an exception to this rule.

    My inlaws are a rare couple...
    Dad is Jehova witness, Mother is Mormon. How it works? i dunno...but it just does.
    My wife's dad is laid back and super cool. Her Mother can be nice, but always tries to run the shots and everything has to be done her way. Even through planning our wedding...My Wife and I would love something and book it, She would come in with " well if it were my wedding i would..." Towards the end My wife and I blew up and told her what time it was..
    Things have been ok since we have been married and I only have to see her once every few weeks or so.

    I think 85% of people dont get along with/dont like being around the mother in law :p

    My in-laws are great. They have always been there when we needed help. They are getting up there in years and soon my wife and I will have to look out for them. Its easy to do when you actually like the in-laws.

    If you plan to stay with your girl for the long-term, keep your mouth shut and do whatever her parents want, within reason. No sense letting pride ruin a good thing, and when push comes to shove, Lord knows it's you who will be out the door, not them. And definitely do not butt into a conversation/dialogue that's just between your GF and her parents. Smother them with kindness no matter how they treat you -- it will be good for everyone (your GF will definitely appreciate it) and good practice for dealing with all the other assholes in the world. Obviously I don't know all the details so this is my knee-jerk response. Just my $0.02

    They are fine when they "girlfriends", but if and when you marry, come see me then and tell me what you think.
